Abstract

Potato purple top (PPT) disease has been reported worldwide, including Canada, United States, Mexico, Russia and Pakistan. During surveys carried out in a recent epidemic in Ecuador of potato purple top disease phytoplasmas were identified in symptomatic potatoes as well as in some tissue cultured potato shoots by PCR/RFLP analyses and by sequencing and phylogenetic clustering. The majority of the samples resulted positive to phytoplasmas enclosed in the ribosomal subgroup 16SrI-F, for the first time detected in potato and in the American continent. Further studies will allow verification of the transmission and further presence in Ecuador of this phytoplasma associated with purple top disease of potatoes.
